comment Does `shutdown -P now` safely unmount a USB drive mounted to `/dev/sdb1`?
@dtmland, al disks are umounted before shutting down - after killing all user processes. Now, if the system starts again (as in the case of reboot) they can be mounted again on boot - or not, depending on configuration.

comment BASH: Special character '�' suddenly appeared (Ubuntu)
Bash, yes; but which terminal (xterm, gnome-terminal, whatever, there are a lot of them). To see LANG, type locale -v in your shell. Moreover, knowing the exact version of your OS would help.

comment BASH: Special character '�' suddenly appeared (Ubuntu)
Does not happen here... probably depend some strange LANG settings. In UTF-8 ñ is a two-bytes char, so you must have the terminal ignoring it. Which terminal are you using? How is LANG set?

You can add the excerpt of the log where it is failing to the question --- or a link to paste.bin. Add also which Unix flavor you have and which version of the LaTeX suite.

...what a bad idea ;-). So, a a glance, 2015112 is November, 2nd or January, 12th?
